Igwe who was the principal protocol officer to former governor of Imo state, Rochas okorocha, in an interview with Vanguard spoke on how the movie industry is not spared by the harsh economic reality.
She said “No sector has been spared in the recent spiral downturn of the economy not even Nollywood in all its glamour and glory.
“The people working now are the lucky ones and I’ve been working.
“People are not really filming anymore.
“People still shoot though, but not really anymore.
“last year if you go to Festac, you could see about 10 productions going on but now you’ll probably see 2.
